Aquaclear 70 noise?

I just set up a 45 gallon aquarium with an Aquaclear 70 filter. I had a small tank in the past and don't remember ever hearing the filter besides the water noise. This filter seems really loud. I know they are supposed to be great filters. Is the noise normal? Here is a 10-second clip.

You might try taking it apart and putting it back in again. It does also take some time to get a little scum built up and acts like a cushion.

Otherwise just return it and try again. Could have a bit of wobble.
Favorite tank right now - 12G Edge nano fish

New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?
